TOSHIKO OKANOUE, Photo Collage : The Miracle of Silence

Toshiko Okanoue is known for her black and white photo collages, using images from print magazines. Influenced by Max Ernst and Shuzo Takiguchi, a Japanese Surrealist, her collages are truly surreal, often featuring women from fashion magazines placed in a variety of locations with unrealistic proportions. The exhibition also includes dressmaking patterns from her youth, photographs, source magazines and a few paintings. The museum has included several designer dresses (Dior, Balenciaga) from the Kyoto Costume Institute.
